I’m very excited to see the GREATEST SIGNING OF ALL TIME come together…

My Pal, Andrew Neal of Chapel Hill Comics fame has decided to get out of the retailing biz. Because he is who he is, he’s doing it in style. (See pic above.)

So, if you are anywhere around Chapel Hill on July 12, I urge you to come out to the party (6pm-9pm). If you haven’t clicked on the link above, Neal has invited Jim Rugg, Ed Piskor, Tom Scioli and myself down to help him go out in style. I also know other comic luminaries will be there, so there you go.

I’m going to try and make it as special as I can. Hell, I might even where my newly purchased bow tie… clip-on style.

Love you Neal… and I wish you the best.

Your Pal, Pitzer.

Store Visit: Comic Envy

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

The other week we found ourselves in Asheville, so I made some plans to stop by one of the new kids on the block… Comic Envy.

CE.. aka Darrin… had contacted me a few months ago and placed a rather nice order. So, one of the first things I see when I walk in is a nice shelf of our comics. A nice surprise. The next nice surprise was a vintage rack of old magazine style comics.

I use to LOVE these things. Graphics Story Monthy, Drawn & Quarterly, Kid Anarchy! Heck, there was even a series from Tundra I had never heard of before. So… you see… nice selection!

As timing would have it, while traveling to Asheville, our FCBD printed samples were to be delivered, so I asked Darrin if it would be OK if I had them sent to his shop. He was up for it, so here’s a pic of him in front of a swell wall hanging by Hope Larson…

I really enjoyed talking shop with Darrin. Because of the nature of our trip, I thought I could devote an hour to stopping by Comic Envy, and when I finally got around to checking my watch, an extra half hour had slipped by.

So, if you anywhere near the Asheville area, you should do yourself a favor and stop by Comic Envy. They have a great selection, can shoot the poop about all types of comic biz, and are fighting the good fight.
